The Amazing Spiderman 1960s Covers
As you can see from these comic covers, Romita's style is extremely bold and bright. His lines are well-defined, smooth and dynamic. There is no sketching in his style, his characters look like Saturday morning cartoons. I really like this simplistic style because it suits the subject matter which is silly and cartoonish. The stories are ridiculous and Romita's style of cartooning really makes them come to life. I like the way that characters are idealized and extremely stylized, but not too much so. John Romita Sr. is one of my favorite artists and the way he works reflects on the way I draw.
